    Lol i can't help it born in the late 90s had to put cassie there
    Ikr Mobb deep should be better known, all the songs were bangers, my fav Hey Luv is so hard to find. Lol my playlist is a mess of old and new
    Hey Luv was okay. I prefer Hell on Earth and The Infamous albums though - I think they fell off the wagon so to speak after Hell on Earth, apart from like random songs (e.g. Quiet Storm, Where Ya Heart At, Streets Raised me...). Shook Ones Pt2, Extortion and Trife Life are among my favourites from them. The production was amazing on Shook Ones Pt2; I think Havoc is up there with the greatest in terms of his skills.

    Rap at its finest: Big L, Eminem, NWA, Nas, Tupac, RAKIM.

    Nate Dogg must get an honourable mention for his hooks.

    Your initial list really isn't old school. We should be talking about the true legends:

    Snoop, Dre, Tupac, Nas, Ice cube, Eazy E, Biggie (the greatest), Rakim, Mobb Deep, Ll cool j, Em, DMX and lil Kim.

    Tech n9ne and j cole are decent but not in the same league. Current rappers are ok but tbh it's only jay z and Kanye that can get anywhere close to the glory days of easy coast vs west coast
    I have added hardly any of those i wanted to, to my list because it was pretty quick.
    Secondly old school for me is different since i was born in the late 90s and consider old school different to what you may, however that being said i listened to "Snoop, Dre, Tupac, Nas, Ice cube, Rakim, Mobb Deep and lil Kim" at that time i was more into rnb than rap tbh but yh great artists.

    Yh guess we should be bringing up the legends because i was just listing J.Cole because i'm a fan and the other rappers were from my secondary school days so had to mention

    Mobb Deep - Give it to me Love that track, Ahh but i don't think they're back in the game like they used to be, i remember everyone bluetoothing tracks lol, loved it,
    Ja Rule, Ashanti damn how are people sleeping on her? She was great, R.Kelly anyone in terms of rnb? Because he is like the king of rnb. 'The Game' , Nelly - for me they're old school i guess

    Two of my favourite genres.

    Mostly love old school hip hop - A Tribe Called Quest, Wu Tang, N.W.A, any Gang Starr stuff however as previously stated Kendrick is amazing. Love "Momma" off his new album. Common's "Be" is one of my favourite rap albums ever from the new-ish gen. In fact anything that came out of Kanye's record label at the time is great such as John Legend's debut and (obviously) Late Registration.

    As far as R&B is concerned I'm a big neo-soul fan, D'Angelo is probably my favourite artist of all time. Erykah Badu, Frank Ocean, Maxwell, Dwele... Also recently discovered more Soulquarian-era stuff so Common's "Like Water For Chocolate", The Roots' "Things Fall Apart".

    Love anything to do with Pharrell - old school Neptunes is my ****. LL Cool J's "Luv U Better" is such a jam.

    Any song by Kanye is sick- Flashing lights and Heartless are both pretty old-school (and great tunes), I can't wait for him to release his new album though

    Doubt you'd find a bigger Cole fan than me.
    Also huge fan of Chance, Gambino, Usher, TI, Kendrick, Kanye, BIG, 50, Pac Nas etc etc I listen to a LOT. Too many to list.

    Dreamville do new school rap better than anyone imo.

    We are currently in a great period of Hip-Hop. Lots of quality alternative stuff out. People just look back on music from the past a little more fondly than is justified and act like music being put out now is terrible. Other than G Funk and Outkast most of the stuff I listen to is from the past ten years.

    I disagree with 'more fondly than is justified'. That aside, would you give me a few recommendations for the cream of the past decade; I would like to hear your opinion?
